PostSubject: BAOR RMP    2/9/2013, 20:29

Good Evening,
I was born in RMH Rinteln on 12 March 1954, my father Sgt. William Moore, RMP 4 Inf. Div. Provost Coy, service number 22246747 (or 22246742 as indicated on some of his documents and on his tombstone).
Daddy passed away on 11 June 1957 and was buried at British Military Cemetery Limmer - Hanover.
Does anyone know about an accident that day which led to his tragic death when he was 34 years old - myself I was 3. I was told that Daddy was in an open jeep and the they had an accident on the German motorway.

During the war my father participated in the Allied troops invasion from Messina to Rome I know that he was not in Anzio.
I have a photograph with Daddy in Naples (15 June 1944) , and a postcard of the old Appian Way in Rome. On the back of this postcard he wrote: 01 June 1944: Appian way in Rome where it took some fighting for. His cap badge during those horrible war years was of the Northamptonshire Regiment, on top of the badge is reads Gibraltar and below the Gibraltar castle with key hanging our it further refers to the Talavera battles. A further photograph shows my father in Jerusalem on 16 December 1944. I still have his cap badge with me today.
Again, does anyone know which way the Northamptonshire regiment followed in Italy - I can but imagine that the kept to the centre of the county ?!

I am very thankful to you all for creating this web site and would love to receive some information, naturally if you have any about my two questions.
Thank you
and sincere regards,

Unfortunately I don't think there is anyone with an RMP Background or was serving in the Herford area in the mid 50s who is a current contributor to this site. Have you tried the RMP Association website?

Similarly regarding your father's service with the Northamptonshire Regiment in Italy. I am no expert but I believe there were two Battalions of the Regiment who were involved in this Campaign. The 2nd, part of the 17th Infantry Brigade of 5 Infantry Division who were at Anzio and can therefore be discounted. The other was the 5th Battalion, part of 11 Infantry Brigade of 78 Infantry Division who time in Italy you described in your posting (this included the Battle for Monte Cassino). I would recommend you try the ww2talk forum which does have individuals who concentrate on the Italy Campaign and may be able to provide you with accurate information on your father's early Army service

Good luck with your quest.
